In today's era of digital technology, survival of many organisations is contingent on how they leverage cutting-edge technologies to transform their workplaces into augmented environments. However, for this transformation to happen, organisations must make prudent decisions and avoid the costly “buy, not build” talent strategy i.e., opting for expensive new hires instead of re-skilling or up-skilling the existing employees.

Skill advancement is not a static process, rather it is important to continue it at all levels. If one aims to form an organisation that is constantly learning, growing, and achieving its targets, they need to have learning employees who are keen to adopt new skills and keep step with the ever-evolving business landscape.

Up-skilling is a well-known term. With technology causing a tectonic shift in the workplace and creating new possibilities that can be fully realised only by a modernised workforce, there is an ever-increasing need for students and employees to learn new skills and competencies that are required for the emerging job market.
